Lipsky said he was looking ahead to the tournament despite exhaustion.


Current Asian Tour Order of Merit leader David Lipsky hopes to produce an adrenaline rush and challenge for the Selangor Masters starting on Thursday. The 26-year-old American is on his sixth straight week on the road but fancies his chances at the USD 410,000 Asian Tour event, thanks to his stunning victory at the co-sanctioned Omega European Masters in Switzerland two weeks ago.

"I'm feeling a bit tired but my game is good. I've been playing well so I'm looking forward to this week. I'm starting to hit the ball a lot better and it keeps improving. I think it's because I'm getting more competition so the more I'm out here, the better my game will be," said Lipsky, who has also enjoyed two-top-20s in Europe in recent weeks.

The Korean-American, who won the Asian Tour Qualifying School in 2012, will lock horns with many of the region's top stars this week including title holder Pariya Junhasavasdikul of Thailand, Korea's Baek Seuk-hyun, who finished third here last year and Indian star Anirban Lahiri, who is second on the Order of Merit.
